Sumner Stroh reveals details about his alleged relationship with Adam Levine
Sumner Stroh is an Instagram model from Texas with over 355,000 followers on the app.
In Monday’s video, the model began by saying:
“Basically, I was having an affair with a man who is married to the Victoria’s Secret model.”
She later shared a screenshot of her conversation with Adam Levine’s verified Instagram account, saying the two had been seeing each other for about a year before losing connection “over a period of months.”
This was followed by a screenshot of an Instagram DM notification where Levine was seen asking for permission to name her third child after her.
Defending herself, Sumner wrote that she was “young and naive” at the time of the affair and felt “exploited” by the singer. She claimed she was new to Los Angeles at the time and was therefore “easily manipulated”. She says:
“I mean my morals were compromised without knowing it. I was completely manipulated.”
She added that she never wanted to address the situation “in such a public way”, but admitted that she chose to reveal the story after sending the screenshots to friends and that the one of them tried to sell her to a tabloid. She explained:
“I know the implications of doing what I do, making money the way I do, and being an Instagram model. So being tied to a story like this, I know its stereotypes.”
She then posted another video on TikTok addressing a comment from a user who read:
“It’s no secret that he’s been married for a decade. The only victim here is his wife and children.”
She claimed she was “remorseful”, “embarrassed” and “disgusted” to have been linked to the singer, but added that she was new to Los Angeles at the time of their entanglement and had ” impression” that Adam Levine’s marriage to Behati was over.
“I thought they were keeping quiet to avoid negative press.”
She claimed she was unsuspecting because she was conversing with Adam Levine’s verified account and acknowledged that she was not the victim in the situation. She also apologized to Behati and her children, saying they were the “real victims” of the ordeal.
No statement has yet been provided by Adam Levine and his team.
